GALVESTON — Capital murder defendant Bartholomew Granger pleaded not guilty Monday before a Galveston jury, as prosecutors seek the death penalty for a deadly shooting outside the Jefferson County Courthouse last year.

To impanel an impartial jury, Granger’s defense team and prosecutors agreed to move the case from Beaumont to the Galveston County Justice Center in Galveston.

Granger, 42, was accused of the March 14, 2012, rifle ambush of his daughter and her mother as they returned to the courthouse for testimony against Granger in a sexual assault trial.
